 Congress is considering several amendments to the False Claims Act which would broaden whistleblower protection and qui tam provisions.  Supporters argue that these amendments will lead to better government and a closer monitoring of federal expenditures.  Others maintain that the amendments, which make federal employees relators under qui tam, are inadvisable at best and potentially detrimental to business and other concerns.
